The Steelers are officially on summer vacation as the offseason workout program wrapped up and they won’t come back together until reporting to training camp later this month.
Steelers season never really ends for Steeler nation so while the Steelers players get their minds and bodies right to embark on the 2016 regular season we’ll be busy looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Thursday, July 14th.
He terrorized the turf at Three Rivers Stadium for three seasons but this season he’ll be honored at Heinz Field. The Steelers announced on Wednesday that they’ll honor the 2016 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee, linebacker Kevin Greene, with a special ring ceremony during the game against the Chiefs.

Greene played for the Steelers from 1993-95 and ranks third in all-time NFL history in sacks with 160. He recorded 35.5 of those sacks in his three seasons with the Steelers.
Last season the Steelers honored Jerome Bettis with his own ring night after he had been inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Suspension game on
Tom Brady and his balls will be indeed sitting it out for the first four games of the NFL season as his bajillionth appeal was denied on Wednesday. His next option to continue fighting the suspension aside from just going out on the field and daring Goodell to “Come at me, bro” would be to appeal to the Supreme Court.
I’m a little over this fight, myself. It figures that Brady and Roger Goodell would suck all of the fun out of a ball scandal but dragging it on for 2+ years will certainly do that; even to balls. If anyone has the ego to take this all the way to the Supreme Court while they legit have more important things to do its Tom Friggin Brady.
Who’s got the hot seat?
The AFC North crew over at ESPN was at it again and this time the question was who in the AFC North is on the hot seat this season? This question actually stumps because you have to throw logic out the window.
Logically, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, should continually be on the hot seat for the Bengals never having won a playoff game in all of his 14 seasons. He’s taken them to the playoffs five straight years only to have an early exit each time.
Lord knows what will get that man actually fired. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin and Ravens whiner coach Jon Harbaugh are both safe and everyone is pretty sure Hue Jackson is going to be given more than Mike Pettine time to turn the Browns into a different version of a dumpster fire.
